Workmanship Standards

Does anyone out there have a "workmanship" standard that I can use as a procedure in a job shop environment. We machine aluminum castings. Looking for things like cleaning and deburring requirements and the like. Thanks

I'm interested, but confused (what's new!)
Don't the engineering drawings provide the workmanship standards and specifications for the job - in this example machining?

If you're in a volume production situation, and trying to sort out grey areas like how much flash/burr can remain, you need to come to an agreement with your customer and then include the tolerance on the drawing (I would have thought).

Am I missing something here?
Perhaps more information might help!

George,

I am not aware of anyplace you can find generic workmanship standards. You may need to create your own. That is what I will be doing very shortly. Do any of your customers impose a workmanship standard on you. Perhaps you could use that as a starting point. I know I will.

Good Luck!!

Good call Carol. That very idea worked well for me in the past. I took our best customers standards which represented what we were doing anyway and "created" our own which applied across the board unless otherwise specified. It removed lots of guess work, our overall quality improved and it impressed customers resulting in us getting more work.

We didnt bend one brain cell doing it either, just pure plagerism :)

MIL-std 454 is a very good reference for generic work instructions. It will either give examples or refer to other standards.
Don't know the address, but the site is "DODSSP"

We simply take an 'agreed good product' to use as our workmanship standard and keep it in the manufacturing area, if there is any doubt we refer to it.

The standard is then added to our calibration system to ensure that the 'level of workmanship' is reviewed and still as per the customer requirements.
